Enate Chardonnay-234 2010
Chardonnays du Monde (France), Gold Medal. Sélections Mondiales des Vins (Canada). Berliner Wein Trophy (Germany).
Spanish Vines, Inc
A wine that's not a fat and buttery new-world style of Chardonnay but rather a green pear and lemon meat style. The tartness doesn’t lighten up the wine or lessen its impact, and there's complexity: dried peach, lemon pie, spiced pie crust, even raw almond. Drink now or in the next several years.
The wine is the result of a thoroughly thought through concept that breaks away from the traditional image of fragility that characterizes many Spanish white wines.
About the Winery
ENATE was founded in 1991 with the goal to produce high-quality wine in the Somontano appellation, and it harvested its first grapes in 1992. The winery also has a strong link to contemporary art: the building itself is an architectural piece of art, including the decoration of the inner spaces. The commitment and love of art is reflected in the wines' labels, which are reproductions from contemporary artists' paintings. Enate is open throughout the year to visitors, but for a superior experience, booking a visit in advance is recommended. ENATE is a modern winery open to visitors the whole year into the established times and booking in advance, in order to give a better service.
